Project 70,001. An Exemplary Program Establishing Cooperative Distributive Education for Disadvantaged Youth. Final Report.
LeConche, John J.
The project combines full-time and on-the-job work experience with related programs of youth activities and classroom instruction, and provides an avenue for acquiring the Connecticut State Equivalency Diploma. It is aimed at serving young adults in Hartford, Connecticut who have left school before completing 12 years and who are unable to obtain employment. As of June 30, 1975, 18 of 25 enrollees have been placed in training stations and more than 60 have been interviewed and pretested. More than 70 business contacts have been made. An advisory committee and a chapter of the Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) have been formed. A sample of the interview questionnaire which is administered to the prospective program participants appears in the appendix. Also appended are lists of the participating business firms, membership lists of the DECA chapter and advisory council, testing data, and information concerning project meetings. (NJ)
